The Cuisinart Electric Kettle ($70) is one of the best all-around models you can buy. Some of its highlights include fast boiling thanks to 1500 watts of power, as well as a convenient cordless base. It would make an unbeatable gift for the tea-lover in your life!
Even if you’re not a regular tea drinker, it’s still handy to have a kettle around, and the KitchenSmith by Bella version ($15) is a great budget option. It can heat up to 7 cups of water at a time, and it automatically shuts off when it reaches a boil.
